Tight hips and adductors (groin muscles) can limit and hinder your ability to use your legs effectively to regain guard and also make your guard easier to pass due to the limited range of motion.
This sequence is great as it allows for a different and multi-directional stretch that is effective and very useful.
Start in a wide and comfortable stance, walk the hands forward in front of the body and then back towards the legs. Then walk the hands side to side and find the restrictions in your flexibility and hip mobility.
Hold the stretches for 5-15 seconds if warming up and hold for longer time periods of cooling down after exercise.
Perform the exercises for 2 minutes (or longer if you are doing a cool down).
